lmao I can't stop laughing
Before getting into Astral Chain I had only seen the reveal trailer which made it look like a sci-fi action game. I was pleasantly surprised when I realized I was playing a game with a mix of cyberpunk and sci-fi with a speck of fantasy.
Not sure I cared much when this game was announced in 2015. Playing Final Fantasy XV also didn't help restoring my faith into Square-Enix. To be honest I originally hadn't planned on playing this one at all. Well, until the news got out that it wasn't a remake after all. I mean at least no matter its quality it wouldn't invalidate the original Final Fantasy VII, and people would still have to play that so they could say they had played and witnessed the story of this classic of Playstation history.
So I got to play Final Fantasy VII Remake after all. I was curious about the new direction the story would go in, and how well they translated the original's atmosphere into a 3D world with HD visuals. Still cautious I went in with low expecations. And still found myself disappointed.
It may not be as flashy and cinematic as other Playstation era RPGs, but Breath of Fire III has a unique charm to it that I haven't found in any other game to date.
